Usually the holiday season starts with a feeling of confidence. You can totally do this. You’ve got weeks before the big day! There’s plenty of time! Time goes on…and the schedule gets stacked tighter and tighter.
Eventually, you start feeling a bit panicked. Nearly all the stress that comes with the Christmas season can be categorized into two categories:
- Tasks You HAVE to Do
- Tasks You’d LIKE to Do
The key is figuring out which category each task belongs to. Does this really need to get done?
The Secret to Skipping Stress Over the Holidays

Use Mrs. Claus’ organizational printable to help you determined what MUST be done. Yours completely free!
